My take from todays message thanks to Pastor Doc Jun
Todays world has thrown our normal lives into an unpredictable ocean filled with waves and strong currents. What used to be normal is no longer so. Such a massive turn-of-events affected people from all walks of life. Companies and governments big and small are scrambling to get solid footing once again.
We had been too busy living our lives that we had not spent enough time with God and our love ones. In the last 80 days, we can no longer claim that we are too busy for our Maker. God has cleared our agendas.
A lot of us were greatly affected by the recent series of community quarantines. A lot of us has lost so much. A lot of us started settling lower that what we expect from life.
Do not settle for less. We have a Big God that can take us to a bigger and brighter future. A Big God that can bring us bigger blessings beyond our expectation. Raise up our eyes to our Big God in this season of challenges. As we build or rebuild our relationship with God, expect that a Big God can rebuild our lives, our careers, our businesses.
We just need to lift up our eyes to a Big God and understand that all these had to happen so that we can build a stronger relationship with Him. We need to understand, as well, that our God is a Big God capable of Big opportunities, blessings and changes in our lives.
Don’t look down, lift up our eyes to our Big God.
Acts 3:1-10 ESV The Lame Beggar Healed
1 Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.[a] 2 And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple that is called the Beautiful Gate to ask alms of those entering the temple. 3 Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. 4 And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, “Look at us.” 5 And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. 6 But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” 7 And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. 8 And leaping up, he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 and recognized him as the one who sat at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, asking for alms. And they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
